    We booked for two nights as a short getaway and after the first night we booked in again for a couple months time because we fell in love with the gorgeous log home. Perched ontop of a beautiful hill the views were incredible. When we arrived the fire was going and the whole house felt so warm and inviting. Small details such as having shampoo, conditioner and body wash in each bathroom was fantastic and fresh milk in the fridge! We already cannot wait to go back!

  • The Lodge was incredible

    The Lodge was incredible. We could happily have spent a week there without ever leaving the property! It's gorgeous and quirky, so warm with the fires roaring and there's so much to do! We were already planning our next visit whilst we were there - can't wait to return. I don't have one negative thing to say about the place, I would highly recommend it.

    Absolutely stunning property! The view from the house of the mount is great. We went there to celebrate our first anniversary and was so worth it, the spa and pool table added to the fun. Will surly return to this place. Thank you Deborah :)
